Gun Control is a good thing in many different ways for many people. However, when you have a law abiding citizen who can not purchase a gun because the restrictions are too high then there is a problem. Gun Control was made to keep a person who has something on their record like drunk driving multiple times, armed robbery, or illegal citizen from buying a gun because the government wants to keep everyone safe and does not want to harm anybody. As stated in my research found in a world encyclopedia, “Many people own guns for the protection of their home.” (“Gun 440”). What the article is saying is that if you take away the handgun of a citizen who has done no harm, and when there is a need for the protection of your family and they have no gun then they have nothing else to do but hide and hope the criminal does not find them before the police come.
Society today think that just because guns kill a majority of people, if the government bans them, everything in society will be perfect and there won’t be murders or a police officer can always eliminate the danger. These accusations are not true and it’s all based on the place and time. In conclusion, assault weapons should not be banned. Previous bans have not been successful,
It is in the Second Amendment that citizens have the right to bear arms. Guns keep people safe and reduce crime and murder. To reduce school shootings, schools should no longer be “No Gun Zones.” There are, however, a few good gun laws. Gun control laws should exist, but should be less restrictive. In the second Amendment it states, "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
On the one side we have for example Barack Obama, Michael Bloomberg, Thomas Menino etc. They think that it will save innocent American citizens if there is a stricter gun control. Some off the proposal is about banning assault weapons and making magazines with more than 10 bullets illegal. That could save lives because assault weapons are more dangerous than regular weapons and it is impossible to kill as many with 10 bullets per magazine as it is to kill with for instance 20 or 30 bullets. There is also an opposite opinion to gun control.
These killings are just making the United States look bad and we aren’t doing thing to help this situation. But just sending them jail for life and calling them ill. Like i thought we were suppose to be the role model where we try to keep everybody safe and just have a safe community. It’s so many reasons of why having gun control policies is a good thing. Probably 10 times more than why we shouldn’t have it. It’s safe in all types of reasons.
The shootings that have happened in schools throughout America over the past few months has divided Americans on what they need to do as a nation to stop additional shootings from occouring. Many believe that creating new laws on buying weapons by requiring background checks, holding adults liable for the actions of their kids and requiring safety devices on weapons to stop youngsters will stop these massacres in schools from happening, it 's a step in the right direction, however, it 's not good enough nor is it effective enough, America needs well regulated gun laws and the politicians must understand that the laws should be based on facts, not opinions. There are several problems that need to be looked at in order to determine which laws are necessary. According to a recent study, America has the highest amount gun related deaths every year in the world. “Germany, has 371 gun related deaths, France 255, Canada 165, the united kingdom 68, Australia 65, Japan 39 and America, 11,200”.
Some believe that this is a terrible amendment to have our country live by, this group supports enforcing gun laws or even abolishing guns all together. This is not the only side of the argument though, there are opposers to enforcing gun laws that believe that there are already enough laws for buying guns and what you can do with them. The opposers also believe that we should focus more of our efforts on the mental health of the people instead of the guns they use. The debate on gun control is a very pressing matter. Some believe that the laws on gun control should be stricter, while others believe the laws should be looser for self-defense and hunting.
Gun control has long been a controversial topic in the U.S. The U.S. government need to strengthen the gun control regulations to a level that no one has gun, with only a few exceptions. The government will then still need to have supervision on these exceptions. These can protect her citizens and future. Currently, the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution empowers the U.S. citizens to own guns.
One may argue that guns should be completely outlawed, whilst another may argue the complete opposite -- making guns controversial. A common misconception about gun control is the means of doing so. The controlling of guns does not necessarily mean the taking away of guns from all American citizens, but the taking away of guns from unauthorized American citizens; otherwise known as gun regulation. Though it is stated in the second amendment that it is a right to “keep and bear arms,” the intentions at the time were that of a state facing tyranny. Hence, it was a sensible security to implement “well regulated militias” with the power to effectively resist.
Opponents of the age restrictions believe that by increasing the age required to purchase and own guns, it violated a basic right held by all Americans. A belief held by these people is, “On the other side of the debate, lawmakers… opposed the new law, saying it trampled on Second Amendment rights” (Mazzei, Patricia). The Second Amendment gives the right to all people in the United States to bear arms (guns) and by increasing the age to purchase and own guns, the law would not allow 18- to 20-years-olds to arm themselves. This would violate the basic right of all the legal and law abiding citizens that fall within this age category, who are adults in the United States. By preventing them from getting the weapons and guns they wanted, these people will not be able to protect themselves from criminals and murderers with
